Scary Morning (off hubby topic, but need some advice)

Ok this morning I got a phone call from a friend of mine and we were just talking. She asked me if I had some catalog I could give her and I said I do. So I lowered my head and started counting them. Only to have my breath start getting shallow and my vision got real blurry and then I got very dizzy. I told her how I was feeling and she told me to eat something, I was almost finished fixing me and my 3 year old some breakfast. So after we hung up I was sitting on my couch still breathing funny and looked at my chest and my heart looked like it was trying to jump out of my chest. I could even feel it on my back. It kinda felt like I was being raised off the couch everytime my heart beat. I then broke out in a sweat so bad that I thought I was going to have to get in a cold shower, but did not do that in fear that I would send my body in some sort of shock. I finally called the DR and the nurse told me she thought I was having a panic or an anxiety attack and wanted me to take it easy for the rest of the day. I was so scared that I had done something wrong. Have you ever felt this?? What did you do to make it stop?? I should add that I am almost 17 weeks pregnant.

Yes, I have had this same thing happen and it is terrifying. I've had it wake me up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night. My doc said it was anxiety too but its hard to believe that I'm feeling so anxious in my sleep. Have a cup of herbal tea and relax. If it continues or gets worse, I'd go see your doctor and rule out anything that might be more serious such as your blood pressure being too high or too low because those could cause the same kinds of symptoms.

Good luck

I wish at the time I would have thought about my blood pressure, but once I started feeling a little better I took it and it was 139/93
